up there >> that's what i was thinking the reason for it. >> commissioner hillis. >> i was going to ask you about the parapit. is that the reason for it? i don't see the mechanical? >> yes, there will be mechanical equipment on that roof. part of it, we had shown the height of the solar panel very high. it would probably be lower than that but the angle would have to be decided by the installer to make sure that we get the maximum out of the solar panel. then also, they may very well be -- some are getting harder and harder, there will be a cooler or something like that on top. >> thank you >> commissioner. >> i know we have one more. i think there's nothing extraordinary exceptional. i'll make a motion. >> second. >> commissioner moore. >> i think the proposed alterations are very much in line with style being understated, california shingles style. i think it's very appropriate to do the expansion on top. only thing i would ask have we thought up bird friendly footing or what might be required since we're so close to the ocean? >> thanks commissioner moore. it's the plans don'
. >> president fong: commissioner he hillis hngeddlee this is an internal document to guide the department so for that it's great and works, and i'd be supportive opinion we can all go through and wordsmith. when i read through it, the only thing that struck me is kind of a little odd was the deliberate column, value, which someone spoke of85(ñ in public comment. because this is a long term kind of year-long document. we do change our decisions as people disagree and things evolve. so that one just struck me as odd. and i thought commissioner wu's comments about why we're calling out these kind of five specifics in the mission statement is a good commented. and i'd support that. but i think over all, you know, this isn't a great document and it's meant to be kind of inspirational and guide staff. so i'm over all supportive. >> president fong: commissioner sugaya. >> commissioner sugaya: yes. i'm too old and cynical to get into this kind of stuff. but i'm5xjpqpy going to make a n to continue, and have the staff consider the comments that were presented today, both from public and from commiss
. and i think commissioner hillis talked about that. assuming that we get the next version, it's palatable to everybody what do we do with it next rather than just print it because there are foundational uses in any organization to have these types of mandates, or manifestos. >> commissioners this item doesn't necessarily require any notification but was there a date specific or just indefinitely? >> president fong: when ready. but thank you very much for bringing it back up, and taking the nudges, and bringing it before us. >> commissioners on the motion to continue, commissioner jip &c @&c"p% commissioner hillis, aye, commissioner sugaya, aye, commissioner wu, aye, commissioner president fong, aye. that passes 7-0. item 9, 1411 market street informational presentation on the proposed art installation. >> good afternoon, commissioners, aaron hollister, department staff. before you today is the public art proposal -- public project at 1411 market street. the market was entitled in april 2007. it will contain two showers contained on a project site the on the west side of market street as t

on the motion to continue, commissioner jip &c @&c"p% commissioner hillis, aye, commissioner sugaya, aye, commissioner wu, aye, commissioner president fong, aye. that passes 7-0. item 9, 1411 market street informational presentation on the proposed art installation. >> good afternoon, commissioners, aaron hollister, department staff. before you today is the public art proposal -- public project at 1411 market street. the market was entitled in april 2007. it will contain two showers contained on a project site the on the west side of market street as to jesse street. it will be 35 stories with a tall story base along market street. the south tower will be 19 stories. the two towers will be connected via a nine story podium along 10th street. it contains approximately 19,000 square feet of commercial space. pursuant to planning code section the project requires a public art component value equal to 1% of the art construction cost of the project. the artist selected by the project is toper delaney, a san francisco based artist who specializes in environmental art. her works can be found th
if we can have another motion, i will vote for the higher parking. >> commissioner hillis. >> just want to comment on the parking. i think not being here on the commission for the other project where we've gone to .65 or .67 to 1, clearly we can go to .67 to 1. my question is, is this project -- are there unique circumstances in this project that would justify four additional spaces, three additional spaces? i think the one argument against it is it's on mission street near barton a pretty transit-rich corridor. but there are things that president fong brought up about basement being in existence. there are stackers involved. there is the issue of land dedication and the off-site affordable housing. i don't know how that compares to the other project that were approved at .67 to 1. and whether that is -- that gives increase to parking in a couple spaces. >> commissioner moore. >> this commission will need to grant conditional use authorization to develop on a lot exceeding 10,000 square feet or we'll have to give approval for formula retail. it will have to give approval for pud develop
survivor herself and by jackie hilly. thank you both so much. honor to have you with us tonight. jackie, how did you get involved in gun issues? >> i came about it from a public health approach to gun violence because i had worked with the children's organization and been introduced to david hemingway who has been really the guru on the public health approach to gun violence and it made sense to me because really gun violence is a public health concern when 30,000 people are dying every year consistently year after year, it is a major public health problem. >> john: kim, was it your encounter with real gun violence that led you down the route to be an activist? >> yes. i was a victim of gun violence in 1999. i lost a dear friend. >> john: please explain what happened. >> we were in atlanta. we were going out on a date. columbine had just happened. he was a schoolteacher. and we talked all night about columbine. how not to let this happen again. we were devastated. then we went to a show and we were robbed. he was killed and i was shot. i survived. and since then, i've always wanted to d

? but then we have to talk about making the building even taller. i don't know. >> commissioner hillis? >> i would agree. i mean, obviously you can't add a floor here in a dense neighborhood and not have some impacts. so i would be supportive of getting rid -- reducing the angle of the solar panels and making them float. what is the interior height? >> approximately 12.5'. >> commissioner sugaya says 14.5'. >> >> do you know the heights of other floors in the building? >> the other floor to floor heights are listed on the elevation there. >> 8.1, 8.1, 10 13 >> they are relatively tight, about 8' ceilings chamber typical of buildings built then. >> >> >> moving the solar panels down is a good step. >> commissioner wu. >> is this project necessary or desirable? and i think fact there is no increase in number of units and that the increase is really about expansion of unit no. 11 from 1500-square-feet to over 4,000-square-feet. so i think in my estimation that is just not necessary or desirable and will not be supporting the project. >> commissioner antonini? >> excuse me, comm
, but it looks like a good use >> commissioner hillis. >> thank you. i echo those communities. i know it's hard to find space for preschools. we have had the same issue in our neighborhood and actually there is a preschool, two of them within a block from me that have 150 kids combined. it's interresidential neighborhoods and the kids play outside and they get twice that in applications every year for spots. my kids go there and i'm lucky enough to be able to walk and i have gotten families from this district who drive their kids across town to go there. so there is a need for preschools in the city. and 20 kids is not a lot. it certainly could be managed. i encourage you to continue to talk to each other, because no matter what condition we put on this, white zone or not, it's ultimately how it works and how it's integrated into the neighborhood. every kid that goes to my preschool, 150 kids has to be walked in by their parents. and it works. so i would encourage you to keep working on this. it is part of a cohesive community when you have churchs and preschools as part of residentia
of my thoughts. >> commissioner hillis? >> do you know how many units that were completed were offsite/on-site, the break down or a general estimate? >> shandra touched on this in our presentation briefly. do we have that data with us today? in terms of projects about 70 plus per cent of the projects have chosen on-site. in terms of units, it's 60 plus percent of the units. i dent have the off-site. it's the least chosen option. >> >> those tend to be 100% affordable? >> or to be mixed in with a portion of another development. and anecdotally they seem to be 100% affordable, but i don't have the data. >> if you are off-site, are you able to take advantage of tax credits or some other sorces of funding? >> no, it wouldn't align with a kind of 60% ami tax credit and, in fact, the program prevents you from meeting your inclusionary obligation through the taking advantage of other subsidies. so we wouldn't see that alignment. >> so they are generally done not with other subsidies? >> that is my understanding. the 70% threshold is in the code. these are great questions and policy q
